A Brother Lost - Memento Mori by Nambroth A Brother Lost - Memento Mori by Nambroth
remember that you will die...

:iconhibbary: is organizing a showing themed around Memento Mori, and this is my contribution.

We found this skull in our woods in the spring; the air was still crisp enough to hold the foggy bite of one's breath. What stories could it tell?
I painted it in the same location as it was found originally. The living deer is my own addition, and I hope to leave the meaning open to the viewer's interpretation.

Acrylic on Illustration board, 8" x 10".

I stumbled upon a deer skull with the antlers still attached a year ago and wondered this very thing.  I love this piece.  <3

Beautiful and touching. I love how it DOES tell a story, with only such a little part of the scene.
